Oracle GoldenGate 12c Capture for SQL Server

In Oracle GoldenGate 12c we have expanded the heterogeneity of the product by adding support for the latest versions of the major databases. 

In Oracle GoldenGate 12.1.2.0.1 for SQL Server, which is available for download on My Oracle Support, we offer support for capturing from and delivering to SQL Server 2012. Oracle GoldenGate 12c also supports SQL Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 R2 Capture and Delivery.

Two other highly anticipated new features for Oracle GoldenGate 12c for SQL Server, are the ability for Capture to read from SQL Server compressed transaction log backups and the ability to restrict the need for Capture to read from transaction log backups, required when customers use 3rd party transaction log backup utilities.

Some of the key capabilities of Oracle GoldenGate for SQL Server are as follows:

  • Oracle GoldenGate now supports Capture from SQL Server 2012 beginning with GoldenGate 12.1.2.0.1.
  • Oracle GoldenGate for SQL Server can be configured to Capture from tables without Primary Keys.
  • Oracle GoldenGate 12c for SQL Server supports SQL Server native backup compression and includes the optional configuration to never have to read from transaction log backups, which enables any log backup utility to be used.
  • Capture process can work in conjunction with SQL Server Transactional Replication, and Change Data Capture.
  • Oracle GoldenGate for SQL Server can provide real-time data to heterogeneous target databases, and receive real-time data from heterogeneous databases.

A complete list of supported features and details on how to implement those features are available in the Oracle GoldenGate 12c Documentation Library, available at the following address: http://docs.oracle.com/goldengate/1212/gg-winux/index.html

I also recommend reading our white paper Using Oracle GoldenGate 12c with SQL Server”  that provides more details on how GoldenGate supports SQL Server databases.

Ameristar Wins with Oracle GoldenGate’s Heterogeneous Real-Time Data Integration

Today we announced a press release about another successful project with Oracle GoldenGate. This time at Ameristar. Ameristar is a casino gaming company and needed a single data integration solution to connect multiple heterogeneous systems to its Teradata data warehouse.

The project involves integration of Ameristar’s promotional and gaming data from 14 data sources across its 7 casino hotel properties in real time into a central Teradata data warehouse. The source systems include the Aristocrat gaming and MGT promotional management platforms running on Microsoft SQL Server 2000 databases.

As you can notice, there was no Oracle Database involved in this project, but Ameristar’s IT leadership knew that  GoldenGate’s strong heterogeneous and real-time data integration capabilities is the right technology for their data warehousing project. With GoldenGate Ameristar was able to reduce data latency to the enterprise data warehouse, and use this real-time customer information for marketing teams in improving overall customer experience. Ameristar customers receive more targeted and timely campaign offers, and the company has more up-to-date visibility into financial metrics of the company.

One other key benefit the company experienced with GoldenGate is in operational costs. The previous data capture solution Ameristar used was trigger based and required a lot of effort to manage. They needed dedicated IT staff to maintain it. With GoldenGate, the solution runs seamlessly without needing a fully-dedicated staff, giving the IT team at Ameristar more resources for their other IT projects.
